I really like this. You must be taking your light painting to new levels! Who was brave enough to do the fire, and whose hair was burnt? Who is wearing the suit? #1554240

Jeff E Jensen November 28, 2013

Thanks, Beth.

This is Dustin, a recent acquaintance. Dustin has a bunch of old cars that Doug has been using with some model shoots and he's also taking up performing, both sword swallowing and fire performing. We had a lot of fun with this shoot.

Here's another image, one of my favorites from the shoot. #10909008

You guys are dangerous to be around Jeff but the images are certainly different :0) #10909023

Rita K. Connell level-classic November 29, 2013

theses are great shots. I wish I had friends like yours. keep them coming just stay save #10909258

Kalena Randall November 29, 2013

Great stuff, Jeff!

Beth Spencer November 29, 2013

This is cool you all are friends. I am just wondering everything is shot from behind them, is it easier to get the exposure and effect that way? #10909618

Jeff E Jensen November 29, 2013

Thanks, everyone! This kind of stuff is a lot of fun.

Beth - that is a great question. No, they don't only have to be from behind, I just happened to like these. Here's one more form the front. This is actually a 6-image composite. #10909620

Beth Spencer November 29, 2013

This one looks great!! #10909626

Jeff E Jensen November 29, 2013

Thanks, Beth! #10910004

The first one is my favourite. Love that suit. Are you referring to the show Firefly with the title? #10910903

Jeff E Jensen November 30, 2013

Thanks, Lisa. Mostly I was referring to the butterfly shaped wings made of fire. #10911313

Susan Williams November 30, 2013

I like all of them! This looks like another fun shoot, Jeff. I think you should open a brick and mortar Gallery on Main Street. #10911401

Dale Hardin November 30, 2013

Check out Jeff's blog for some more from this creative series. Great job, Jeff. #10911700

Neat stuff! So when you aren't trying to light your fellow Phellos on fire, you are finding people that will do it to themselves voluntarily???

Fun pics-really cool. #10912515

Michael Kelly level-classic December 01, 2013

Wonderful shots Jeff. I like them all but I really like how organic the fire looks in the first photo. #10912675
